Faye Brooks and Gareth Gates have split.

The "Coronation Street" actress and the 35-year-old singer had been dating on and off for seven years before getting engaged in January this year, but the pair have now decided to go their separate ways once more as they've called off their engagement and ended their relationship.

A source close to the former couple told the Manchester Evening News: "Faye and Gareth are both extremely sad about their relationship ending. They still care very much about each other and want to remain friends, but the wedding has been called off. They tried to make it work but sadly it's not meant to be."

News of their split comes just months after 31-year-old Faye insisted they will "never take each other for granted again".

Speaking in March this year about their last split - which saw them separate in September 2018 after six years together - Faye said: "It was for the right reasons for sure. I feel like we'll never take each other for granted ever again.

"Work took over and we ended up missing each other so much that we were missing life together.

"We are enjoying engagement but obviously I've been dreaming of this [wedding] day since I was a little girl."

And Faye - who plays Kate Connor on the cobbles - even admitted Gareth "pulled it out of the bag" when it came to her proposal, which included him performing a 17-minute song.

She said: "He's always been a gentleman from the moment I met him. He planned the whole thing behind my back, which I was thrilled about because I love surprises.

"He had my whole family involved. My brother went down to London to collect the ring, everything was planned to a tee.

"He's a perfectionist and it didn't go unmissed. He really did pull it out of the bag."
